Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Santa is on his way!  

School is out early for the Christmas break on Friday and you know what that means!  Santa is coming to the Maud Marks Library.  Join us this Friday from 1-5 PM as we celebrate our annual Santa's Ranch.  We will have special treats, games, crafts, and holiday music.  Make a gingerbread house, or get your facepainted.  And, of course, don't forget to visit Santa himself.

The Maud Marks Library would like to thank the Friends of the Maud Marks Library and musical groups from Taylor High School for making this day possible.

We have been having so much fun this summer with our adult craft program DIY!  In June, we learned how to decorate cakes.  In July, we learned to knit.  And now, this coming Wednesday at 2 PM, we will be learning the art of decoupage.  We'll be taking plain boring boxes and other shapes and covering them with beautiful cutouts to make nice little knickknacks and places to store little keepsakes.  Don't worry, all the materials will be provided.  All you need to do is click here to register beforehand.  We'll see you then!
